Honest reviews


Great light-textured foundation

It really does work! When I first put this on, it looked a little too dark, but when I looked in the mirror a few seconds later, the color was perfect! Another bonus: it does not get too greasy/oily or cake up and turn dry. The finish is light but just wonderful for the heat and humidity of Kansas. I am very glad I bought it, even though it is more than I would usually spend on foundation. Using a foundation brush makes it go on even smoother, and you use a lot less. I use light/medium on my pink-tinted, medium skin, and it works well.

Saw it on the TODAY SHOW!!

Works really well! Blends right into your skin colour. Adds a brightness without all of the makeup. Recommend!!!

Don’t Waste Your Money!!!

You know what your face looks like with just your SPF product on? That’s what it’ll look like after you apply this disappearing stuff….except that you will have every line and crevice in your skin highlighted in beige. And that’s much worse than having a naked face!No color. Slightly shiny. And you pay big money for that privilege.Thumbs down!

Okay, but not as good as I’d hoped.

It’s a dream to use but just leaves a little bit too much white residue. Maybe I should try a darker color. I bought the light/medium as this is what my skin is but am finding I prefer my other "colored" foundations to know what I’m getting.

BEST foundation!!

I like to wear mineral or powder foundations for my oily skin however with the changing seasons it is hard to buy a bunch of different shades so when I saw this I decided to give it a try. I am so impressed with this formula. I use a foundation brush to apply as it is the perfect tool for achieving a natural finish. The light/medium shade is perfect for me and it is truly magic how it just blends in without looking or feeling like I’m wearing anything at all yet it covers. It evens out my skin tone and blurs out any of my flaws. I use one pump first and apply a dot on each of my cheeks, nose, forehead and chin and blend it out with my brush, then I take another pump on the back of my hand, dip the brush in the foundation then dab and blend it on any areas that need more coverage. It leaves a natural look of real skin.

My New Favorite Foundation

A friend of mine on You Tube recommended this foundation to me so I went to a well known beauty store yesterday to try it out. I have medium skin with cool undertones. I applied the Light/Medium, which is described for skin with more olive to yellow undertones, I thought it would end up looking terrible. I was so surprised that it came out of the pump stark white and as I blended it in, it matched my skin tone exactly! It also gave nice buildable medium coverage, felt very nice on my face (I really didn’t feel the need for a finishing powder) and I was sold. You only need one pump to cover your entire face and its best applied with your hands or a foundation brush from the top of your hand. I am a faithful user of the Argan Oil now I look forward to trying her other products! You can change your color from season to season as needed, hopefully she will make a few more shades. Highly recommended!!
